7 Reviews of Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground
Quiet, private and unique

A great spot away from the main Joshua Tree strip. We visited for one night during the waning height of COVID and staff was taking all the necessary precautions. There were some restrooms and dish cleaning station available, though we didn’t use them. Spaces were clean and tidy and, although close together, were separated by beautiful bushes that kept it feeling private. Lots of birds around and great views of the desert and mountains. Fire ants were everywhere, so wear shoes. Most of the spots don’t have individual sewer connection but access to shared dump station. Everything was in great condition. The art installations and theatre looked so cool, but were closed temporarily. The lake was super cool and teeming with wildlife. Very reasonably priced for 50 amp & water hookup per night. Very easy access with 25’ trailer. We will definitely return.

Close to Joshua Tree National Park

Visited towards the end of June campground was clean. Spots were clean close together but bushes separated sites and allowed some privacy. Stayed here due to the proximity to the park and having electric and water hookups which was great in the desert.

Wonderful campground outside but close to Joshua Tree

This campground was a great find. Pleasant hosts, check in was easy despite the late arrival. Sites were well maintained and easy to navigate in and out. The sewer is not at the site but you can dump on your way out. We went over Thanksgiving so it was a long line to dump on departure. The weather was perfect, campground was quiet and stars were bright. I would definitely go back. Only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that they had some issues with toilets overflowing (clogging) and cold showers (and they weren't even close to full, maybe half full?).

Comfortable, Clean & Pretty!

very nice campground. Always clean. Small store onsite. Small lake. Some sites are full hook-ups and many tent sites. Quiet and peaceful. I’ve stayed many times - September, October & May. The Joshua Tree Music Festival takes over the campground for a week in October and a week in May. Wonderful time to stay and hear such a huge variety of music and art!

Beautiful view of sky

This is the most beautiful place to watch sunrise and sunset and stars. So peaceful.

Hidden Gem outside of Joshua Tree

We stayed 3 days at this funky little RV campground. It’s full of art installations and has its own small lake that you can fish in. (Catch & Release) There’s a ton of birds and wildlife to observe and a really well stocked general store on the property. Bathrooms were clean and staff was friendly and helpful. There is a small playground onsite for littler kids and tons of space to tent camp. We stayed in 201 which was a HUGE flat spot that could’ve held a much larger rig than ours. All in all it was great, I’d definitely recommend it and plan to return. About 10 minutes to the Joshua Tree National Park entrance and 15+ minutes to good climbs. Easy access and close to town if you forgot something but you won’t hear any traffic.

Mid-level Attractions

I always have a blast camping but this one lacks a lot of attractions besides for the beautiful sites. It's also close to main main counties like Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. The hight of this camping site is it features many fantastic festivals like Live Oak Music Festival.
